    Montec G5. A little pricey but you can sharpen them on a flat stone and they are TOUGH!!! I have killed 5 deer with one head. Blood trails are great and pass thrus are common. I love them.

    It's still hard to beat a Muzzy.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. I'll check all of them out.

    I've only got 4 Razorback 5's and 4 Razorback 3's left from long time ago. Best broad head I ever used but they are like hen's teeth to find now.

    I'm selling these NAP Killzone on ebay right now. If you're interested PM me and I'll cut you a deal. Since you're in Clemmons and there's no shipping I will yank the listing and sell them to you for $25.
    I bought a bunch when I started bow hunting (4 packages). I don't need that many so I'm selling 2 of them.
    I also wanted to experiment with some others although I've had good performance with these.

    I've stuck a ton of arrows thru deer. Never liked muzzy. For some reason the holes were always small and plugged up.

    No bleed, no good.

    We've had vastly different experiences with them.

    I have come to like the Swhacker Razor 252 100 grain. A big 1.5" cut on contact blade. I killed 3 deer with 1 broadhead this year each time was a pass-thru and left big blood trail. One deer I shot straight on and it fell in its tracks, went in left shoulder cut thru lungs, went thru liver and out the side was really freaky the way it went down. Normally I use Mangus broadheads best ones on the market in my opinion. Stinger is one of my favorites weight being 125 or 150 both are awesome broadheads favorites

    Wife has used carbon express torrids a few times, with a weak recurve crossbow. They've passed all the way thru, and caused pretty massive hemoraging. They open and the slice things. First deer's heart was nearly cut completely in two. Cheap and very effective.

    How many lbs for the crossbow and straight bow? I know my ten point really slings a bolt and fixed broad heads will not fly right in it. Pretty much forced to shoot mechanicals.
